A N T I D O T E
When we think of heroes, we often picture the characters we see in comics and films. But is this superhuman archetype, far removed from our own selves, one we should revere at a time of political instability, social injustice, and climate change?
I believe it’s time for the modern heroine, and that this hero exists within us all.
An “antidote” is a medicine taken or given to counteract a poison.
ANTIDOTE is born from the the idea that, although there may be “poison” in this world, the everyday person has the power to rise up, become a hero, and enact meaningful change. We do not and should not wait around for someone else to come up with a solution when each one of us can be the antidote the world needs.
ANTIDOTE is an Action + Activism system of dressing—streetwear/activewear with a video game sensibility, that empowers you to go out in the world and achieve a greater objective. Each outfit exists within and pulls details from a different "level" of the ANTIDOTE world. The clothes are also accompanied by a VR experience and a series of interactive objects.
Ultimately, ANTIDOTE is a story, and perhaps your story, of civilian empowerment in a time of dystopia.
